Curious question. I am avoiding serious heavy weight training because I poses genetics of an orge… As soon as I start lifting weight I build muscle mass extremely fast. Yeah I know I will get flamed about “Dood are you dumb”.
There is a reason. I live in South Korea and all I want to do is fight. Kickboxing/Muay Thai. Unfortunatley having ogre genes it puts me out of the weight catagories of most Koreans. at 5’11" and 85 kilos I am in the Twilight zone of weight and there is no openents I can fight. The only openents I can fight are giants guys that are 6’4" and up and 110+ kilos plus.
Any who my kickboxing gym has very limited resources as far as weights go… The free weights stop at 10 kilos barebells and easy bar free weights are welded at 26kilos. Bench weights are maxed out at 60 kilos. I can manage these easily unlike my Korean counterparts that are featherweights compared to me.
Any who can I just increase the volume of instead of the weight? Currently I rotate 6 excercises at 3 sets at 20-40 reps depending on the excercise… Will I sustain or gain weight if I increase the amount of reps?
